Love Should Not Cage - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Anything in excess is a poison
And love by no way is an exception.
Growing possessive, love severs the tie.
Caged, the beloved wants to flee.

The dove that you keep and feed
Must move about at its ease.
It will come back, liking you,
And if not, it is not yours.

    I wonder how you are able to word such rich thoughts continuously. The last two lines convey a lot.
    It will come back, liking you, And if not, it is not yours. Great lines.
